Mood Stripes 044: Strange

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this audacious adventure… especially for the shy one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Chapter 44: Strange

All through the day’s travels, Kagome kept a covert eye on Sesshoumaru’s stripes, which rippled through colors only she could see. Someone would say something, right? Miroku had sharp eyes. Sango wouldn’t hesitate. Shippo would probably make fun.

Only Kohaku, who brought up the rear with Kirara on his shoulder, seemed to be keeping as close an eye on Sesshoumaru.

Letting her steps lag, Kagome joined him. Now, how did you ask someone if they shared your crazy?

“Kohaku-kun, does Sesshoumaru-sama seem strange to you?”

A shy glance. A strained smile. Kohaku quietly asked, “Do I seem strange to you?”

  2. ACK! Another mystery? This is so darn good! I sit perched, waiting for the next chapter. I’m not even going to try and guess where this is going.

  3. I’m speechless. Just when I think that I’m starting to get clarity, you dumbfound me. In what way would Kagome now find Kohaku strange. Are we even talking about the wish now?
